I see you lying there.
Your words call to me
you have no voice.
My mind begins to spin
with curiosity, predictions, wonderings-
a desire to dive back into your world.
My brain battles responsibility vs. escape.
I grab you and flip open to the bookmark.
I settle into my chair and your words fill my mind’s eye.
Your voiceless call is triumphant again.
